HIC's Porcelain Blue Willow Cups and Saucers depict the popular and highly collected Blue Willow dinnerware design. Originating in England, circa 1780, this richly illustrated design, featuring a weeping willow, pagoda, bridge and lovebirds, portrays the Chinese legend of a wealthy man's daughter who's fallen in love with her father's clerk. The father pursues the newly eloped couple through his garden and onto the bridge where they transform into lovebirds and fly off beyond his reach. Whether serving coffee, afternoon tea, or entertaining for the holidays, Blue Willow is casual enough for use every day, yet elegant enough for those special occasions. These beautiful 8-ounce mugs with matching saucers are perfect for enjoying coffee or loose leaf teas, hot chocolate, spiced cider, even warm milk and honey, and other favorite beverages. Crafted from fine-quality porcelain, they're durable with a natural heat-retaining characteristic to help keep beverages warmer longer. The easy-hold handles offer a comfortable grip and secure transfer into and out of the microwave for quick reheats. They perform equally well for cold drinks, like iced chai. They make great gifts for art enthusiasts and tea lovers, or hostess gifts and coffee gifts for at-home baristas. A tradition since 1957, HIC Fine Porcelain is safe for use in the microwave, oven (to 500-degrees Fahrenheit), and freezer. Dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. Set includes 4 (8-ounce) Blue Willow Cups and Saucers.
